Eggplant With Gold Metal Accents Chocolate Box

Hello Friends!

I'm so excited to share one of my latest projects with you here today. I've created a gift box for a friend from Stampin' Up!'s box die cut and filled it with some coordinating chocolate candies decorated to match.

I added some flair to the box with some metal sheets from Add A Little Dazzle.Once I had the measurements figured out, the project was fast and easy. And the next box will be even easier!! I used the Gold Nugget sheet and ran it thru the Cuttlebug in a folder for some texture. Next, I sanded the raised areas with a sanding block to turn the gold to silver. What a fast and easy way to acheive two-tone metal! (for some excellent ideas, visit Add A Little Dazzle's website. It's fabulous!)

The chocolates inside are Hershey's Nuggets covered with two different stamped images (wiggly-line image is unknown, other image is Stampin' Up!)

As a note, I attached the metal to the cardstock with ordinary fabric glue.

To finish off the box, I added a gold button type embellishment with a center gem.

Thanks for stopping by today!!

Hi Kathie! The packaging is as good a gift as the contents. How lovely it is and the way you did the chocolates up is so nice.
